[03:01.52]Q: What is the man?
[03:06.28]Section B  Passage One
[03:10.82]A long time ago there lived a rich and powerful king.
[03:16.28]He was known everywhere for the splendors5 of his courage
[03:21.14]the magnificence of his palace.
[03:24.98]the strength of his army,and the wealth of his treasure.
[03:30.44]At every meal his table held the rarest and best food.
[03:35.90]His life was one of constant comfort and ease.
[03:40.84]The one thought in the minds of each of his servants and courtiers
[03:46.69]was to satisfy every wish of the king.
[03:51.05]The king gave no thought to anything but his own pleasure and desire.
[03:57.90]He never thought about the welfare of his people.
[04:02.05]For years the king lived happily satisfying his every wish and thinking of no one but himself.
[04:09.60] Then one day,he became ill.
[04:13.65]The court doctors could do nothing to save him.
[04:18.01] Fearfully the Chief Physician came to the king
[04:22.77]and told him that he had only few days to live.
[04:28.12]Then the king wept with sorrow and grief.
[04:32.77]"How can I leave my palaces and court.
[04:37.21]How can I lose all my treasure
[04:41.05]and never see my army again?" he cried.
[04:45.70]"It is not fair that this terrible thing should happen to me.
[04:51.34]When at last he knew that he must die.
[04:56.10]he ordered all his servants to parade before him in their richest clothes.
[05:02.37]He asked that all his treasures be laid out in front of him.
[05:07.62]After he had a magnificent banquet.
[05:12.37]he went to the balcony of his palace to watch his army march past.
[05:18.82]with flags flying and music playing.
[05:23.58]While he was standing6 on the balcony, he looked down and saw a poor beggar.
[05:32.23]"Oh,how I wish I were poor!" he cried.
[05:37.58]"I would not then regret so much leaving my kingdom and all that I own.
[05:43.72]I would not be filled with regret because I have done so little god.
[05:50.48]for my people while I had the chance."
[05:55.42]11. What do you think of the king in this story?
[06:00.99]12. What did the Chief Physician tell the king?
[06:07.44]13. How did the king prepare for his death?
[06:13.19]14. What did the king regret in the end?
[06:19.35]Passage Two
[06:22.41]The big Town Hall clock was striking midnight when Frank began to cross the bridge.
[06:28.94]The night air was cold and street-lamps gave little light.
[06:34.29]Frank was anxious to get home and his foot-steps rang loudly on the street.
[06:40.95]When he reached the middle of the bridge
[06:45.00]he thought he could hear someone coming near behind him.
[06:49.86]He looked back but could see no one.
[06:54.20]However,the sound continued,and Frank began walking more quickly.
[07:00.55]Then he slowed down again,
[07:04.10]thinking there was nothing to fear in a town as quiet as this.
[07:09.53]The short,quick steps grew louder until they seemed very near.
[07:14.78]Frank found it impossible not to turn round.
[07:19.22]As he did so,he caught sight of a human form coming towards him.
[07:25.36]After reaching the other side of the bridge.
[07:29.49]Frank stopped and pretended to look down at the water.
[07:34.24]From the corner of his eyes he could now make out the form of a man dressed in a large overcoat.
[07:41.40]A hat was pulled down over his eyes and very little of his face could be seen.
[07:47.64]As the man came near,Frank turned towards him
[07:52.89]and said something about the weather in an effort to be friendly.
[07:58.04]The man did not answer but asked roughly where Oakfield House was.
[08:04.18]Frank pointed7 to a big house in the distance and the stranger continued his way.
[08:10.45]Frank began following the stranger quietly.
[08:14.89]The man was soon outside the house and Frank saw him look up at the window.
[08:21.73]A light was still on,and the man waited until it went out.
[08:27.66]When about half an hour had passed.
[08:31.43]Frank saw him climb noiselessly over the wall and heard him dry
[08:37.17]on to the ground at the other side.
[08:41.33]Now Frank knew what the man wanted to do.
[08:45.69]He walked quickly and silently across the street towards a telephone-box on the corner.
[08:52.74]15. What was Frank's occupation?
[08:57.99]16. What was the strange man?
[09:02.75]17. Whom would Fank telephone after he found this?
[09:09.09]Passage Three
[09:11.94]The development of Jamestown in Virginia
[09:16.80]during the second half of the seventeenth century
[09:22.05]was closely related to the making and use of bricks.
[09:28.50]There are several practical reasons why bricks became important to the colon8.
[09:35.06]Although the forests could initially9 supply sufficient wood.
[09:40.52]the process of cutting was extremely difficult.
[09:45.56]particularly because of the lack of road.
[09:50.71]Later,when the wood on the peninsula had been used up.
[09:56.45]wood had to be brought from some distance.
[10:01.50]Building stone was also in short supply.
[10:06.43]However,as earth was plentiful10.
[10:11.27]it was inevitable11 that the colonists12 would turn to brickmaking.
[10:18.14]In addition to practical reasons for using brick
[10:24.07]as the principal construction material.
[10:29.00]there was also an ideological13 reason.
[10:33.65]Brick represented durability14 and permanence.
[10:39.11]The Virginia Company of London.
[10:43.66]instructed the colonists to build hospitals and new residences out of brick.
[10:52.12]In 1662,the Town Act of the Virginia Assembly
[11:00.27]provided for the construction of thirty-two brick buildings
[11:06.91]and prohibited the use of wood as a construction material
[11:13.65]Had this law ever been successfully carried out.
[11:19.21]Jamestown would have been a model city.
[11:23.94]Instead,the residents failed to follow the lay.
[11:29.37]and by 1699,Jamestown had collapsed15 into a pile of stone
[11:37.94]with only three or four habitable houses.
[11:43.97]18. What were most buildings in Jamestown made of?
[11:50.32]19. Which of the following was NOT a reason for using bricks in construction?
[11:58.86]20. According to the passage,what eventually happened to Jamestown
